The Spring 2024 event is created to encourage a real, pragmatic level of discussion and debate amongst all in attendance. Senior leaders at this event will discuss efforts to expand access to Veteran healthcare services and the complex challenges of incorporating new HIT and medical solutions that will improve the delivery of healthcare to Veterans and active-duty military.
